How can I submit research to the local ethics committee?
If you need to amend or request extensions for approved research, you need to log in to your account in the NCBE portal. After that you can directly request from the LEC and wait for their decision.
The law and regulations of ethics of research on living creatures state that (The local committee will review the research project requests submitted by researchers associated with the establishment where the committee is affiliated. It also has the right to review the research project requests submitted by researchers in vicinity of the establishment upon agreement with the researcher, if there is no local committee in the establishment where these researchers are affiliated, provided the absence of a local committee is not the result of an administrative negligence to establish such a committee.), Article (10.5) item 5.
The e-certificate provided by the National Committee of Bioethics is valid for two years from its issuance, and after two years the course must be taken again.
